Stopped for an early dinner - 5:30 - and enjoyed a casual meal served by the welcoming and kind staff. Received helpful suggestions and guidance when ordering. Tried the Taj Mahal special for two and wound up with more food than two people could eat. Authentic Indian tea and ice cream for dessert. Appreared to be lots of locals -... More

We had no reservation and were tourists but they found a table for us immediately. We ordered the Chicken Tandoori and Shrimp Curry and received an amazing array of tastes and flavores and the presentation was incredible too. High.y recommend if I the Amsterdam area.

After a fun time at the Heineken Experience, we were looking for dinner nearby. This was next door and we can't find much good Indian food back home (Tampa Bay). The service was attentive and friendly, but the food was amazing. We ordered samosa appetizers and 2 entrees with nan, and we couldn't near finish it all. Everything was wonderfully... More

We were just at this restaurant and the food was delicious. The staff were very friendly and well worth it and we left FULL. One of the best Indian meals I have had (even coming from Sri Lanka). Will definitely come again!

We went on a weekday at 8pm and got a table right away. The staff took a while to get to us but was attentive once we ordered drinks and food. The chicken tikka masala and the mixed tandoori was great! Price was right.

We didn't have any reservations and they still gave us a table when the place was fully packed. Probably one of the best indian food i have ever had at a restaurant. I will def visit again when we are in Amsterdam next. Their service was very good and their waiters polite. A must visit!

I decided I wanted Indian food and I had my heart set on where to eat when my friend told me about the Taj Mahal and the good review it had. So we at there sitting outside. The food was definitely authentic, well spiced but not too spicy. The wait staff were particularly pleasant. The prices were on the low... More

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
